DirectAccess – Installation – Configuration in Windows Server 2016/2019

Windows Server 2012R2 Windows Server 2016 Windows Server 2019


Deploying and using DirectAccess requires several prerequisites:

  • Being in a replicated Active Directory environment with DFS-R
  • Dedicated a server to this role:
    • Member of the domain
    • The Windows firewall must be activated, it is this one that manages the transition IPv4 <-> IPv6
  • Dedicate an Active Directory group for computers that use DirectAccess.
  • Customers who are members of the domain:
    • Windows 7,8,8.1,10 Enterprise
    • Firewall activated

If you want to enable post authentication with a certificate, you need to set up an enterprise CA.

So that users can retrieve the DirectAccess configuration, they must be configured in the enterprise network.
